Anyone else watch this? I just binged it today and was entertained despite the usual Ryan Murphy "WTF is he doing?" too-much-ness -- which is present here but relatively under control, at least by his own often-demented standards. Revisionist "alternative history" narratives have been in vogue lately, but I can't think of one as determinedly sunny as this -- which, in our current real-life dystopia, makes it
an enjoyable confection
even if, in the end, what we're being asked to swallow is
largely empty calories

I started watching a couple of weeks ago. I watched an episode at work Friday night and thought it was #3 but really it was only #2. A LOT happened in the pilot. I'm liking it so far but, being a Ryan Murphy creation, I assume there will be much over the top stuff and then it will fizzle out if it continues for a number of seasons. The first season is usually very good and then the shows get really wild and then tepid.
American Horror Story may be an exception to that. I couldn't get past the first season. I thought it tried too hard to be shocking and just couldn't take it. I even tried a different season but didn't care enough about it to finish. Many of my friends really liked the show but it never caught me for some reason.
I no longer long for the old view!
